Kankakee County nursing home abuse and neglect

Families turn to long-term care facilities when their loved ones cannot live independently, and require care and assistance with everyday tasks. Deciding to place a loved one in a nursing home is one of the hardest decisions a family must make, and often very emotional. Families trust that these facilities will provide their loved ones with the care and treatment the need and deserve. However, sometimes facilities and employees breach this trust, and residents are injured or killed as a result.

What If My Loved One is Abused in a Nursing Home?

There are federal and Illinois laws created to protect the safety and well-being of this vulnerable population .When a nursing home resident suffers serious injuries or loss of life as a result of employee negligence or mistakes, families have the right to take legal action to hold wrongdoers accountable. Nursing home lawsuits not only help families recover compensation for the harms caused, but also send a message to nursing home corporations, administrators and employees that poor care or abuse will not be tolerated.
